About this submission

Growing up in a Mexican household, conversations surrounding death were common. I learned to be comfortable with death's inevitability. When my childhood friend passed away last year, what I’d been taught was confronted with a terrifying reality: my friend was gone and wasn’t coming back. This project stems from the pain of losing my friend, the confrontation of addiction in my family, the fear of failing as an artist, the frustration with such little representation of Latinx families. I’LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS served as catharsis through my grief. I hope it brings consolation to others in mourning, too.
